The White Sox tagged Tiger’s pitching for three homeruns today and the Tiger’s offense was quiet for the second straight game in the Tigers’ loss. Craig Monroe got things started with a two run shot in the second inning, but then Jim Thome answered in the top of the third with a two run shot of his own. The White Sox then took the lead when Joe Crede hit a two run homerun in the top of the sixth. Chris Shelton doubled home a run in the sixth, but that was the closest the Tigers got the rest of the game. Joel Zumaya relieved Bonderman and Paul Konerko took him deep in the eighth inning.
Jeremy Bonderman struck out eight in seven innings, but he gave up the two homeruns.
So the Tigers drop to 5-2. Still not bad. They have the day off tomorrow, and then they have afternoon games against the White Sox on Wednesday and Thursday.
